Re: it all depends on who's asking and why
"People are really comfortable with true universal surveillance as revealed by Snowden, there were no mass Outrage-fests"
There was quite a lot of outrage, actually. Maybe Fox News just didn't cover it?
GOP reaction was strangely mixed. The libertarian wing of the party generally was concerned about the possible privacy issues, but mainstream Republicans were focused on prosecuting Snowden and the journalists he worked with for revealing what they saw as important intelligence gathering programs.
